After weeks of unveiling teaser images of its brand-new 2024 Volvo EX90, Volvo has finally taken the wraps off of its new seven-seat fully electric sport utility vehicle which will arrive on the market next year. Volvo aims to sell only fully electric vehicles by 2030, a very ambitious electrification strategy that will require multiple EVs. The new Volvo EX90 will sit at the top of the Volvo lineup, a spot currently held by the venerable Volvo XC90.

You can think of the new Volvo EX90 as essentially an electric XC90. Of course, it is more than that. It features a brand-new design that should serve as the starting point for upcoming Volvo electric vehicles while inside, there is a host of advanced safety and driving assistance technologies. Volvo is known for the safety of its vehicles and the EX90 is no exception. Over the last few weeks Volvo has talked about some of the more advanced safety technologies found in the latest EX90, confirming with the unveil that it will feature what Volvo calls an invisible shield of safety using latest sensor technology.

These advanced cameras, radars, and lidar systems pair within Nvidia Drive technology software to monitor everything that is happening around the vehicle and react as needed to prevent collisions. The system can warn drivers of dangers around them, make subtle corrections to preserve safety, and ultimately take control of the vehicle if needed. The new Volvo EX90 notably can come to a complete stop and notify responders if the driver falls asleep or is no longer able to control the vehicle. The technologies offered in the new EX90 will be fluid thanks to over-the-air updates.

Advanced connectivity

 

Like all new Volvo vehicles, the new EX90 will feature a Google built-in infotainment system. Housed in a 15-inch centre touchscreen, this system features Google Assistant, Google Maps navigation, and Google Play access. Wireless Apple CarPlay will also be offered. There will be 5G connectivity inside and buyers can use their smartphone as their key fob.

600 km of range for the 2024 Volvo EX90

 

The new Volvo EX90 will feature a fully electric twin-motor powertrain powered by a 111-kWh battery. On the WLTP cycle, Volvo says the EX90 can go 600 kilometres on a single charge. That means that when converted to North American range numbers, the EX90 should deliver between 450 and 500 kilometres. Moreover, Volvo says you can charge the new three-row fully electric SUV from 10 to 80% in under 30 minutes.

Horsepower is rated at 517 hp while 671 pound-feet of torque will flow through the front and rear wheels. The new EX90 is built on a brand-new chassis, and it is composed of recycled steel, recycled aluminum, and recycled plastics and bio-based materials.

Volvo also announced a few weeks ago that the EX90 will feature bidirectional charging which allows the EV to serve as a power source. It can send electricity back into the grid to charge accessories or tools. You can also in theory use the EX90 as a generator for your home should the power go out. This technology will develop in the next few years and will likely not be possible when the new EX90 goes on sale next year.

Volvo is going full EV and the automaker’s ambitious strategy will need models like the EX90 to be a success. On paper, the company seems to be on the right path.
